The Art of Facilitation

An introduction to outdoor, exploratory play.

The Art of Facilitation workshop provides an introduction to the understanding of exploratory, play-based experiences for children.  We will be discussing the increasing need for these spaces, especially in these times, the potential benefits of outdoor play, and practical tips and tools to apply these concepts.


When we can set our own agendas aside, facilitation becomes an art. 

A fluid experience that integrates a holistic approach to education by understanding

how to co-create experiences together.
